Courtney Stodden has been in the Celebrity Big Brother house over in the UK for the past 2.5 weeks, and it’s a shame it hasn’t been shown in the states, because she was fantastic on it and I really actually started to like and respect her – not to mention see how intelligent she is, and what a generally nice person. Sure, she gets a bad rap for her 6″ lucite heels lettuce bikinis and for having married a 50-year-old dude at only 16 (the eyebrows should be raised at Doug on that one… SMH), but she’s actually incredibly likeable and really came into her own on the show.
Unfortunately, she was evicted from the house during last night’s show, which isn’t half bad considering she made it further than Dustin Diamond (yes, Screech was in it, too) and the finale is on Friday. After leaving, she revealed just how much she’s grown and what she learned about herself during her time away from her husband.
From E! Online:
Though she was “buzzing” (having a great time, per her new favorite British slang word) most of the time, the worst part, “was boredom and not being able to communicate with my family,” Courtney exclusively told E! News after leaving the house.
But, she added, “I was able to come away with strength, wisdom and positivity from my experience. I feel more like a grown woman.”
Awesome. Maybe she’ll end up leaving Doug and experiencing life a bit more. Or, you know, maybe – as she actually astutely put it to a few of her fellow housemates who questioned her relationship – love is love and they’re actually meant to be. I don’t think that latter part’s true, really, but who am I to say?
